ITK Voyage: An Ecuador-based receptive travel agency

Our English-speaking travel agency is a local receptive private retailer that provides tourism-related services to Ecuador and the Galápagos to French, English and Spanish speaking travelers. We bring forth over ten years of experience in designing high to luxury travels to the Amazon, the Andes, the Pacific Coast and the Galápagos. All of this with an empasis on custom-made tours and stays.

It was founded by us: Antoine Grouazel, Laetitia Camara and Pierre Brière, three French childhood friends. ITK Voyage Ecuador was then launched in 2009 and followed by ITK Voyage Colombia, in 2017.

Since then, our team has grown and count six more full time awesome team members.


Of Breton, Norman and German origin, Antoine began his language studies in Brittany in 2003, at the University of Rennes 2. He then enrolled in a 2 year program specialized in the leisure, environment, sport, and tourism industries (University of Valence, LEST). He then obtained a Master degree in economics and tourism at the University of Chambéry (IMUS).


After meeting Laetitia at university, Antoine undertook his professional career in Mozambique where he stayed several months. It was there that he learned the receptive travel agency tourism fundamentals organizing diving and safari travels.

Together with Laetitia, they decided to fly to Quito Ecuador, soon after. There, they both started working as travel agents in different receptive travel agencies. It gave them the opportunity to getting to know Ecuador & Galápagos as professionals as well as travelers themselves.

From this dual experience, they specialized in custom-made travels and tours and created today’s ITK Voyage Ecuador & Galápagos Travel Agency. Which has become, nowadays, one of the leading travel agencies in Ecuador’s four main regions: the Amazon rainforest, the Galápagos, the Andes, and the Pacific coast of Ecuador.

Antoine, what are your hobbies ?
I love football, cycling, and sports in general. But what I particularly enjoy doing are those activities done in nature, such as trekking, climbing, glacier, ascents, and so on. My other passion is traveling, discovering new cultures, and beautiful landscapes!

What do you like to do in your free time?
Enjoy my family, go trekking with friends, run, listen to music and watch ‘Le tour de France’ in July.”

Which region of Ecuador do you like the most?
To me, definitively the Andes! Why the Andes? Because of all the opportunities it has to offer in terms of outside activities and sport. Outdoor sport is really my thing! And, well, also because it’s a calm naturl human-free area. It just feels so free and good up there. And then comes the Galápagos Islands of course! I just love them as much as the Andes. Not for the sport that much, but for diving and the nature itself. Such a rich and unique wildlife… It’s just another world!

Laetitia Camara – Manager & Cofounder

ITK Voyage Colombia
Since 2017


Born in Lyon-France, she is of African, French and Asian origin and spent her childhood in Franche-Comté. That is where she got a taste for the good French cuisine, having a “weakness” for the charcuterie and white wine. Laetitia is very proud of her Vietnamese and Senegalese roots (paternal grandparents’ heritage)


After obtaining a AA degree in Tourism, Laetitia kept on studying at the University of Valence (France) where she eventually obtained a BA in leisure, environment, sport, and tourism. There, she met Antoine (today’s ITK Voyage’s manager). They worked together in Mozambique for a Receptive tour Operator which encouraged them to pursue working more in depth in tourism. As Antoine, she received her Master degree in the university of Chambéry and then moved together to Quito.

She first worked for an important English-specialized tour operator in Ecuador. Then, two years later, she got hired by a French travel agency and stayed for another two years. Finally in 2013, Laetitia joined our French-Ecuadorian team at ITK Voyage Ecuador.

In 2017, it was a turning point and we decided to launch our travel agency in Colombia too! Since then, she is the one in charge of our agency outside of Ecuador and has become the specialist to consult when planning to travel in Colombia. Based in Bogotá —Colombia’s capital, Laetitia will be there for you to design your custom-made colombian dream travel.

What are your hobbies, Laetitia?
Traveling, sports (body combat, steps, dance), reading, French cinema, meeting people, and laughing or making people laugh!

What do you like to do in your free time?
Enjoy my friends, go swimming and dancing on weekends.

Which region of Ecuador do you like the most?
The amazon rainforest brings me a sense of incredible serenity. I love to let myself be rocked by the river during canoe trips ; night walks in search of jungle wildlife. I very much appreciate the weather during sunny days and the food is excellent! I do love the Andes too, because of the different landscapes and the indigenous people. For what regards the Galápagos, well it’s a ‘petit paradis’ on earth as we say in French! So much to see, so much beauty! I love the weather, the landscape, the beaches, and its incredible and diverse wildlife. Snorkeling there is by far one of my favorite activity.

In a more urban area, I deeply enjoy life in Quito: its historic center one of the most beautiful in all South America! It’s actually a UNESCO World Heritage site. During the day, the streets are bustling and you can still see the typical local population. In the evening, the center lights up and offers a breathtaking view over the city and its landmarks.. And let’s not forget the parties on Friday and Saturday evenings in ‘la Ronda’ street.


Ecuadorian on his father’s side and Colombian on his mother’s, he was born in a small colorful Andean village called Pimampiro. Very young, he had the chance to live a couple of years in the Ecuadorian Amazon rainforest before moving to Quito where he studied and then worked.


In 2014, he started working in the hotel industry. He learned rapidly English and then French. As he was working there, he rapidly discovered he just loved working with travelers from all around the world.

He first worked in ITK voyage former hotel and then moved his way up to the main office in Quito where he is now in charge of the English relations.

Fernando, what are your hobbies?
I’m more into the whole cultural field such as history, Andean and amazonian myths and beliefs, even if I practice extreme sports on my free time.

What do you like to do in your free time?
Extreme outdoor activities, playing guitar, watch sports on youtube, and going out with my son wherever and whenever I can.

Which part of Ecuador do you like the most?
To me, the Amazon Rainforest. Its biodiversity that constantly surrounds us, twalks and treks in the heart of its dense and unpredictable vegetation, its unique nocturnal charm when hundreds of animal sounds break thru the silence of darkness, the immense rivers that make their way thru the forest, and then its native peoples who make life seem so easy while in such a hostile environment.

But I also love the northern colorful Andes of Ecuador, home to people who have managed to preserve their ancestral customs which they gladly sharen daily thru simple conversations and interactions. The Andes is home of a real cultural mosaic!

Finally, I love Quito’s Historic Center a historical and religious jewel where many corners remain to be discovered.
